Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jarell Quansah have both been withdrawn from their respective international squads due to injury and other reasons. Alexander-Arnold, who recently suffered a hamstring injury during Liverpool’s match against Aston Villa, will not join the England squad for their upcoming fixtures against Ukraine and Scotland. Similarly, Quansah has withdrawn from the England U20 team, although Liverpool has not provided a specific reason for his absence.
Alexander-Arnold’s injury has been deemed severe enough to keep him out of action for England. The defender’s absence raises concerns about his availability for Liverpool’s Premier League match against Wolves on September 16, immediately following the international break. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp stated that the injury is not too serious, but further assessment is required.
Speedy recovery, lads! 👊

On the other hand, Quansah’s withdrawal from the England U20 squad could be due to injury or a decision made in the best interest of his development at Liverpool. The U20 team is currently scheduled for a training camp, and it is possible that Liverpool considers it more beneficial for Quansah to remain with the club during this period.
Ibrahima Konate will also stay in Liverpool due to his ongoing injury recovery. The defender will miss the proposed France games as a result.
For Liverpool fans, the withdrawals of Alexander-Arnold and Quansah raise concerns about the team’s depth and potential impact on upcoming matches. However, the club will hope that the players can use this time to recover fully and return to action in top form once the Premier League resumes.
